The old port of Monte Carlo or Port de Fontvieille, also known by the historical name of Port Hercule, is located in a small natural bay to the south of the Rock of Monaco. Between the mid-20th century and the beginning of the 21st century, it was expanded with land reclaimed from the sea and equipped with a semi-floating concrete breakwater.
